"The food was very well prepared and presented. However, out a party of 6, one dinner did not arrive until 10 minutes after the rest had been served. Closer attention to this would have been appreciated. I did ask for a quiet table as my 92 year father was joining us. After a few minutes, it was clear he was not going to be able join in our conversations. Malbec may not be much fun for a person who has some hearing deficits."

"I had a good first experience here. Mainly because the service was so excellent. I did enjoy the ceviche and my salmon was right on target. The waitress was pushing the steak pretty hard, which I realize is their specialty. SO, I will definitely return when I'm in the mood for steak.
I've had excellent Argentinian food in Hollywood, so Malbec has a lot to live up to.

"A foodie blogger highly recommended this restaurant, so my fiance and I made a reservation to try out there food. It took 40min to be seated even though we had a reservation. Had we known that they will be understaffed and starved, we would've gone somewhere else. The food was tasty but the whole experience was unpleasant as it took forever to get our food and check."

"We went for a birthday dinner and were really fully satisfied of the food and service at this restaurant. The food was super delicious and we ate everything that we ordered from appetizer to dessert. Super good and the service of our waitress Natalie was excellent. The owner was also around and very attentive, he made sure we were satisfied. I highly recommend this place. Thank you very much."

"Good atmosphere and decor. The ceviche was fantastic. However, the steak was disappointing. I ordered the Ojo de Bife, which was tougher and fattier than I would expect for the price and quality of the restaurant. Overall, I would try the restaurant again, but would stick to the seafood plates."

"I was really looking forward to going to this place on NY eve with my family who is all from Argentina. We hoped to have a little slice of home on this special day which also happens to be my dads birthday. He's 69 and battling cancer. The place was chaotic even tho we had reservations early in the evening. There was 0 charisma to this place , no energy, no sense of home not even a greeting from anyone who even spoke Spanish ( not that it was required.). We were sat by the front door which led to a constant line of people hovering over our table loudly. We couldn't even hear each other speak. The waitress seems overworked and only came to our table a few times. It took over an hour to get our food and we weren't even offered water or bread at that point the whole table was so over it we quickly ate some of our food and left. The food was ok. Nothing out of the ordinary or to write home about. I got the chorizo, it was fair at best ... My mother said her food was really good perhaps she made a better choice. This was sadly one of the worst New Years Eve experiences I've had in many many years and so unfortunate that it turned into a very unpleasant birthday for my dad."
